I am just about to start the Coopers Wheat kit and I was wondering how to add coriander and orange zest to the brew, if I could even do this at all. Also how much of each should be used?

Here is the amount used in a Blue Moon clone. It uses orange peel, not sure about just the zest.

.5 oz Bitter orange peel
1.25 oz ground coriander


Add to boil the last 5 minutes.

For a kit just boil your 2 quarts with the zest and coriander for 5 minutes, kill heat and add kit. Add to fermenter, top off with cool water. I would strain out the zest/coriander at some point before going into the fermenter.

Thanks! This sounds like it will make the very basic kit a bit better.

I added a Hallertau hop tea I made to my Coopers wheat kit and it came out really great.
